This rugged soft-shell bag is designed to carry everything you need for a flight, including a sizable space for an overnight stay should unexpected weather conditions or a maintenance event leave you grounded.

The bag is made of durable canvas, leather and metal, with soft felt lining to protect your valuable flight gear. In addition to carrying straps, the Bush Pilot includes a padded shoulder strap, making it easier to carry if you have to walk or if you load the bag with heavy stuff. The bag itself weighs 3.5 pounds. $139.95 at aircraftspruce.com.
